THE UNITED STATES TO GREAT BRITAIN



oston Herald, Sunday, May 15, 1898]


       Hail, brother! fling thy banner
         To the billows and the breeze;
       We proffer thee warm welcome
         With our hand, though not our knees.

       Lord of the main and manor!
         Thy palm, in ancient day,
       Didst rock the country's cradle
         That wakes thy laureate's lay.

       The hoar fight is forgotten;
         Our eagle, like the dove,
       Returns to bless a bridal
         Betokened from above.

       List, brother! angels whisper
         To Judah's sceptred race, -
       "Thou of the self-same spirit,
         Allied by nations' grace,

       "Wouldst cheer the hosts of heaven;
         For Anglo-Israel, lo!
       Is marching under orders;
         His hand averts the blow."


MY 338


       Brave Britain, blest America!
         Unite your battle-plan;
       Victorious, all who live it, -
         The love for God and man.
